For the 1st 3 days afterwards, it’s all a bit of a novelty – after all who wouldn’t want to add dried strawberries (yes, dried strawberries) to our salad?
Then we discover another grocery adventure (look out for a future post on the Pirate and the quest for Cookie Butter) and suddenly it’s just a pile of exotic dried fruit.
To the rescue comes the Pantry Cookie! Named such as it’s ideal for using up bits and pieces of left over dried goods. Like that last spoonful of pecans or the open bag of rapidly drying up cranberries.
It creates an oat and brown sugar hug around these abandoned ingredients and transforms into a fruity, moist, breakfast cookie.
